MSU Pompon 2016 High Kick Championship

The Michigan State Pompon team needs your help to attend the 2016 Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship. For the 2016-2017 season, our team of 31 is the largest ever in the history of the team. The costs associated with this event are high and paid per individual team member. With your generosity and support we can aspire to compete again this season!

Your Support Will Be Momentous

Michigan State University Pompon functions solely on fundraising efforts, sponsorships and donations. Because we are affiliated as a club sport at Michigan State, we do not receive funding from the university. All expenses that occur throughout the season are covered in the fundraising efforts of the team. The money we raise through this CrowdPower campaign will be used to send our team to the 2016 Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship in November.

The Mid-American High Kick Collegiate Championship is a competition in which collegiate teams compete in a themed “high kick” performance. The premise of the high kick competition is to create a performance based on superior kick skill. To get a better understanding of what our past performances have looked like you can visit our YouTube page.

Spartan pompon team under Spartans Will banner

In the past, our team has earned recognition–placing 3rd in 2014; 2nd in 2015; and 1st in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2011, 2012, and 2013. We are proud of our accomplishments and how they contribute to Michigan State Pompon’s legacy of hard work and team unity.

Budget

We fund 100% of our operating expenses (with no university support) which is why your gift is monumental to our program. The money donated will be used specifically to fund competition fees, costumes, props, music cutting, facility rentals for practice space and other miscellaneous performance expenses such as hair, make up, etc.

This year we have the largest team we have ever had in the 12-year history of MSU Pompon. Although this many teammates allows us to create a more impressive performance, it also makes our competition fees quite expensive considering we pay by number of performers.

Your donation is the difference between whether or not we have the ability to represent Michigan State University in the sport of pompon this season.

Our overall fundraising goal is to meet or surpass $6,000 and you can help us do this!

Who We Are

Michigan State University Pompon was the first ever traditional Mid-American style pompon team formally established at the collegiate level. Since the team’s creation in 2005, numerous other collegiate programs have been formed. We are thrilled at the growth of the sport at the collegiate level and hope that other programs will continue to emerge. We are very proud to be the first!

MSU Pompon strives to promote value through team unity, enthusiasm, school spirit and loyalty, community involvement, and philanthropic endeavors. Our program provides a supportive academic and athletic environment for the students involved by teaching life skills including time management, the importance of collaboration, responsibility and outreach. Overall, the objective of MSU Pompon is to develop positive role models and ambassadors of Michigan State University and the sport of pompon.
